Keep Shining.

Jesus is considered by scholars such as Weber ...
Image via Wikipedia

Do you know
that you are the light in your world?
The Lord Jesus Christ wasn’t kidding when He said, “Ye are the light of
the world…..” (Matthew 5:14); He meant every word He said.

What is
light? Light is that which makes manifest; it gives direction and shows the
way. Also light brings fulfilment and joy. This is why He gave you the
responsibility of teaching the people of the world the way to live (Matthew
28:19). What a calling, what an honour, what a commission!

Jesus
announced to the people that He is the Light of the world (John 8:12). You are
the light of the world today, in the same sense as Jesus was the light of the
world in His day. If you are a student, you are the light of your school. If
you are a businessman, you are the light of your industry. If you are a
policeman, you are the light of the service. If you are a soldier, you are the
light of the army.

Jesus has
made you the light of the world! When you understand this truth, it’ll put
springs in your steps. There can be no darkness in your life anymore for you
are the light of the world. Sickness, poverty, discouragement and death are no
longer part of your life. There’s something special about you. You’re unique
and different; you’re a shining light. Begin to walk in this reality today.

CONFESSION

I’VE FOUND MY PLACE.
I’VE DISCOVERED WHO I AM – THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. I AM SHINING FOR JESUS
CHRIST TODAY! I WILL NEVER WALK IN DARKNESS. I WILL NEVER WALK IN CONFUSION OR
DEFEAT BUT IN VICTORY, IN JESUS CHRIST NAME, AMEN!

The Holy Spirit Your Helper.

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

AND I WILL ASK THE
FATHER, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU ANOTHER COMFORTER (CONUNSELLOR, HELPER,
INTERCESSOR, ADVOCATE, STRENGTHENER, AND STANDBY), THAT HE MAY REMAIN WITH YOU
FOREVER (JOHN 14:16 AMP).

The Holy
Spirit wants you to know that He is your Helper. Therefore, you don’t have to
face any difficult situation alone. Three Hebrew boys; Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
were thrown into the fiery furnace, but they were unhurt because they weren’t
alone. There was a fourth man with them in the fire. That fourth man was the
Helper amidst the trouble and He is the Holy Ghost.

The Holy
Spirit is your spiritual Helper and He can do much more than your mind can
fathom (Ephesians 3:20). He can help you out of any situation. He’s your
Standby. He’s always there for you at anytime of the day; for He neither
slumbers nor sleeps (Psalm 121:4).

Though the
fire raged, yet, the fire had no power over the bodies of the three Hebrew
boys, “….nor was a hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed,
nor the smell of fire had passed on them” (Daniel 3:27). I want you to realize
that the Holy Ghost wasn’t just standing like a monument; rather, He was
already working ever before the boys were thrown into the fiery furnace.

If you’re
going through fire right now; it may be in your finances, body, academics,
marriage or business, I want you to know God has big plans for you and He’s
already working on it. He has given you the “super-duper” Holy Ghost as your
Helper. Instead of seeking man’s help, turn your attention to Him and trust Him
for He never fails. He’s saying to you today, “when you go through deep waters
and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of
difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up – the flames will not consume you” (Isaiah 43:2 TLB).
Trust Him and He’ll bring you out of that trouble.

PRAYER

DEAR FATHER, I THANK
YOU FOR THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT; HE’S MY COUNSELLOR, HELPER, INTERCESSOR, ADVOCATE,
STRENGTHENER, AND STANDBY. STRENGTHEN MY HEART AND STIR UP COURAGE WITHIN ME I
PRAY; THAT I MAY SET MY FOCUS ON HIM ALONE IN SPITE OF THE SITUATION AROUND ME,
IN JESUS CHRIST NAME, AMEN!

Fear not!

Jesus is considered by scholars such as Weber ...
Image via Wikipedia

Though a host should
encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war should rise against me,
in this will I be confident (Psalm 27:3)

Fear is one
of the most important tools of the adversary, the devil. The moment you yield
your heart to it, it’ll create the perfect environment for him to plunder your
life. Fear is a tormenting and domineering spirit; its intent is to take over
your life. You mustn’t yield to it or give it room in your heart.

Jairus was
on his way to his house with the Lord Jesus when he heard that his daughter was
dead. Jesus had to quickly rebuke the spirit of fear to stop it from dominating
his heart (Luke 8:49-50).

In Psalm
46:1-2, the psalmist expressed his confidence and boldness to confront
terrifying situations fearlessly. The reason was that he had spent a lot of
time studying and meditating on God’s law. You see, the information you allow
into your mind will determine the condition of your heart. For this reason, we
are admonished by the spirit of God in Proverb 4:23 to keep and guard our
hearts with all vigilance and above all that we guard, “…….for out of it flow the springs of life” (AMP).

God has
given us a powerful weapon to cast out fear. That weapon is His Word. The Bible
says, “For the Word of God is quick, and
powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword….”
(Hebrews 4:12). The Word
is all you need to get rid of fear in your life. Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and
hearing by the Word of God.”
As you receive it into your spirit, you’re
emboldened and empowered to face and win everyday’s challenges.

When you
fill your heart with God’s Word, you’ll no longer be fearful or succumbs to
satan’s manoeuvres.

CONFESSION

I am growing in the knowledge of God’s
Word and God’s perfect love. God has not given me the spirit of fear, but of
power, love, and a sound mind. Therefore, I refuse to fear and yield to its
tormenting power for fear has no place in my life, in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

With God all things are possible

IMG_4508
Image by JayKay Choi via Flickr

Has someone ever told you “That’s absolutely impossible; there’s no way you can get that done!” You looked at them with fire in your eyes and said, “Impossible? What do you mean ‘Impossible?’” I’m sure that’s the same way the Lord Jesus looked at His disciples when they told Him, “Lord, that’s absolutely impossible, where are we going to get food to feed all these people!” They suggested to Him to send away the people that had been with Him in the wilderness three days, listening to Him teach and preach the gospel of the Kingdom. They couldn’t see the possibility of Jesus feeding such a great multitude. As far as they were concerned, it just couldn’t happen.

“Are we going to send them away hungry?” Jesus asked them.

“What in the world does He expect us to do?” they wondered at Him. Then to let Him see just how impossible it was, they told Him, “Well, there’s a little boy here with his lunch of three loaves and two fishes.”

Then Jesus said, “Alright, now bring that boy’s lunch here to me”

You know the rest of the story. Jesus fed five thousand men, excluding women and children (totalling twelve to fifteen thousand people), with three loaves of bread and two fishes! That’s not all; there were twelve basketful of leftovers!

You know, God fed the children of Israel in the wilderness all through the time they were there and He never complained once to anyone of shortage! When you read your Bible properly, you’ll realize the import of this. You may have thought manna only fell on the Israelites’ camp a few days. Wrong! For forty years that they were in the wilderness, God fed the children of Israel every day with manna from heaven. That may be impossible for men to do but, with our God, that’s just what He specializes in.

CONFESSION

I serve the God with whom all things are possible, and because I believe in Him, all things are possible with me too. My God supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus and I live in success, abundance, prosperity and health, Amen!

Your prosperity is in your mouth

Crepe myrtle heart
Image by Martin LaBar via Flickr

Your mouth is
not for talking and eating only. The Bible shows us that your mouth is what
charts your course in life. You need to know that your future is in your mouth.
Your prosperity, your health, your success, victory, progress and promotion in
life are in your mouth. That’s on the positive. In the same way, on the
negative, the sickness, failure, poverty, disease, lack, frustrations and fear
that people experience in their lives are the result of what they say with
their mouth.

Nothing happens
in your life except that which you’ve voiced with your own mouth. So, whether
or not you’re going to have a glorious, prosperous, victorious and successful
future is dependent on what you say. The Bible says, “Death and life are in the
power of the tongue.” Everything that’s going to happen to you in your future
is going to be based on what you say with your mouth today.

Never talk
sickness; talk health all the time. You may be asking. “What about when I feel
the symptoms of sickness?” Yes! Symptoms are lying vanities according to the
Bible; they’re not real; only God’s Word is real and true concerning your
health. So, when you declare health instead of sickness, that’s what you’ll
have. In the same way, don’t talk poverty, talk wealth! All the money you need
in this world is in your mouth! Everything you’ll ever require to live in the
great life of glory that God has ordained for you is right in your mouth.

Therefore use
your mouth right! Speak the right words; never talk yourself down. Speak words
of prosperity, health, and life. That’s the language of the king. Every day,
when you wake up, declare who you are. You’re a success, a victor, a more than
conqueror. Learn to speak the right word – God’s Word about yourself every day.
PRAYER

Father, I thank You for
teaching me to order my tongue to speak the right things only. I realize the
power of my words therefore I choose to speak only that which is consistent
with Your Word and Will concerning my life in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

You are the saviour of the masses.

Jesus is considered by scholars such as Weber ...
Image via Wikipedia

IF YOU LIVED ON THE
WORLD’S TERMS, THE WORLD WOULD LOVE YOU AS ONE OF ITS OWN. BUT SINCE I PICKED
YOU TO LIVE ON GOD’S TERMS AND NO LONGER ON THE WORLD’S TERM, THE WORLD IS
GOING TO HATE YOU. (JOHN 15:19 MSG)

Most people
think of what their country can do for them and not what they can do for their
country. Such people are known as the masses. “I don’t understand why we have
bad roads in our country; there is no water and electricity” or “The Government
is not doing enough” they say. You’ll always hear them complain and grumble.

As a child
of God, it’s important you realize that you don’t belong to the masses. The Lord
Jesus testified concerning us that we are not of the masses. You were called out of the masses to save the masses. The moment you
start thinking or talking like the masses, it means you’ve already classed
yourself with them, and society will be more than willing to treat you as such.

When Jesus
brings His Word to you, He locates you among the masses and saves your soul. He
then gives you the Holy Ghost, which automatically separates you from the
masses, to become a saviour of
the masses. Become challenged by the pain and suffering of the other people. When
you see those in need, don’t say, “why doesn’t the government help them”;
rather, think of what you can do to help. Ask yourself, “What can I do?” for
you can do a lot. The Bible shows us that throughout Joseph’s ordeal and pain
which he suffered in the hands of his siblings and boss, he never stopped
helping. This attitude distinguished him from other people and brought him before
Pharaoh. Through his wisdom, the Egyptian empire was preserved during the
famine (Genesis 41:55). Be a helper today; God is counting on you.

You’re the
solution to the problems of the suffering masses of the world. If you would
only become help – conscious, supply to you will never be a problem, God will
channel His grace towards you and you’ll be able to help more and more people
in need. You must distinguish yourself by your way of thinking.

CONFESSION

I am not of the world. I am a citizen
of Zion, called to be a saviour and a solution to the cries of the masses all
over the world. I wake up to my responsibility today, and I declare that my
ability to help others increases everyday in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

You are the best of you.

Jesus, followed by Simon Peter and Andrew
Image via Wikipedia

Even every one that is
called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea,
I have made him (Isaiah 43:7).

The reason
many people still find themselves in unpleasant situations is that they have
not come to terms with their identity in Christ Jesus. You must realize that
you aren’t a part of the masses. Though you’re in the world, you’re not subject
to its rules and procedures.

From the day
you were born again, God gave you the ability to become the best of you that
you could be. In Matthew 4:19, Jesus met two fishermen (Peter and Andrew) and
said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men”. What interests
me here is not what they would become (Fishers of men) but that Jesus was the
One making them, and not they trying to become.

Therefore,
the issue isn’t what you’re being made into, but that God is the One making
you. If He makes you, nobody can unmake you! He lives in you to make you become
that dream that you have in your heart. You don’t need money to become what He
wants you to be.

You don’t
have to wait for promotion to take you from one level to another. You are a
child of God and you deserve the best. It doesn’t matter where you begin; what
matters is where you are going. Wake up, rise, shake yourself out of the dust,
and be the person God has ordained you to be because you can!

PRAYER

Dear Lord, thank You for choosing me
out of the world for Your glory. Thank You for the divine ability to become
whatever I want to be. I take advantage of this power that’s at work in me and
I bring forth durable fruit, in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

Invest in yourself .

Jesus with children, early 1900s Bible illustr...
Image via Wikipedia

A hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth
his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered (Proverbs
11:9).

The future
belongs to those who are knowledgeable. That’s one of the reasons I encourage
young people to go to school. Educate yourself; make sure you read the necessary
materials that will enhance your intellectual capabilities. Don’t spend all
your time reading newspaper; otherwise, you’d merely end up in life reading the
news, when you should actually be making the news. Think at a high level.
Refuse mediocrity; polish yourself by opening your mind to current and relevant
information. I’m not just talking about reading international magazines and
listening to international news .I’m talking about activating your mental
processes, using your mind, having a motivation and strong propensity to
acquire more knowledge in order to be excellent, being the best at what you do.

Become
influential. To do that, you have to study. You have to read and improve
yourself by investing in your mind.

There’re
folks who have been through school but haven’t learnt to task their minds. You
see, it’s not enough to know everything in your course curriculum in school;
the world is bigger than your chosen field of specialization.  You must begin to task your mind to learn at
least, little about other fields. You must always create the time and
opportunity to learn more. As a child of God, you’re anointed and that
anointing gives you the advantage in life. Therefore, you have the intelligence
and everything it takes to do the necessary homework that will get you ready
for the future.

I’m not
saying you must become a university professor to be successful. No, I’m talking
about you improving your intelligence and your understanding of things in life
around you. In other words, apart from carefully studying your Bible, which is
the number one success manual, train yourself to learn about other fields.
Discipline yourself to acquire knowledge. That way, you’re improving your value
and relevance in today’s world.

PRAYER

Father, thank You for opening my
understanding to learn and acquire the knowledge and skill I require to be
relevant and indispensable in my world, and for granting me knowledge of witty
inventions. My mind is activated to receive the right kind of information
always, in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

Save the children, save your future.

Save the Children logo
Image via Wikipedia

According to
the Bible, children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord (Psalm 127:3). They
are a gift of trust, and God expects them to be raised in the right manner
(Proverbs 22:6). It’s therefore important that we, as God’s children, give them
special attention and care, whether or not they are our own children. Remember,
children are our extension; they are our future.

God wants us
to give special attention to the destitute children in our inner cities, who
have been left out of the scheme of things. Many of them are frustrated for
lack of opportunities. Our Lord Jesus Himself showed special love to the little
children during His earthly ministry. On one occasion, He rebuked those who
tried to stop the little children from coming to Him (Matthew 19:13-15).

Many of the
little children die every day out of starvation, with nobody to help. Others
are used by their parents or guardians to beg in the streets. When a young
child is made a beggar from a tender age, he would surely become a violent
adult; he would take out his anger and frustration at society. This is the
reason we must do something now. It is the reason we must do something now. It
is our responsibility to reach them and give them hope. You must understand that
when you save the children, you are actually saving your own future, for the
children are our future.

Save the
children. Give of your resources, your finances and your material blessings to
help provide for them. There are several opportunities open to you, if you
would only take up this responsibility. If you save them, you’ll save your
future. You may be the one to save the person who is being programmed from his
youth to destroy. In the same way, you may save a young person who may end up
saving your life from trouble in years to come.

PRAYER

FATHER, I THANK YOU FOR OPENING MY
EYES TO THE CRIES OF THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD. I YIELD MYSELF TO YOUR SPIRIT
TO RECEIVE INSPIRATION AND IDEAS TO SAVE THE CHILDREN. I PRAY THAT YOU WOULD
GIVE ME MORE AND MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO REACH THE NEEDY CHILDREN, IN JESUS
CHRIST NAME, AMEN!

LEARN TO FORGIVE.

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) - The F...

Unforgiveness
will rob you of your effectiveness. It will stop your prayers from being
answered and this is one of the reasons the Lord Jesus instructed us to forgive
before we pray. Thus, to be unforgiving is to walk outside the Will of God.

Unforgiveness
will cause bitterness to spring up in your heart, which in turn will defile you
and those around you (Hebrew 12:14, 15). In such as atmosphere of bitterness
and strife there will be confusion and all manner of evil work (James 3:14-16),
which of course hinders the flow of the miraculous.

He also said
in John 15:7, “If ye abide in me, and my Words abide in you, ye shall ask what
ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” If you don’t forgive those who have
wronged you, you’re not abiding in Him nor are His Words abiding in you.

Remember,
the Lord Jesus wouldn’t have said we should forgive if He thought we couldn’t
do so. You have the God given ability not only to forgive, but also to love
those that have wronged you, no matter how painful or difficult it is, because
that is the Will of God for us!

Forgive your
husband, your wife, your brother, your sister, your parents and your friend;
forgive your boss, your colleagues and others. Forgive those who have wronged
you, no matter how much it hurts. Forgive them now and let God perform a
miracle in your life!

PRAYER

Father, in accordance with Your Word,
I forgive all those who have offended me. I release them from every blame and
bitterness that I have harboured against them, and I begin now to walk in love
towards them in the Name of Jesus Christ My Lord and Saviour, Amen!

Believe in prosperity

IMG_9885
Image by dr.nixon via Flickr

You first
step to living in prosperity is to believe in prosperity. I’m greatly concerned
and feel really sorry for Christians who don’t believe in prosperity. Most
times they’re the same that condemn and criticize preachers who teach God’s
Word on prosperity, and that’s sad. Not to believe in prosperity or in the
message of prosperity is not believe in God, because when you study the Bible
carefully, you will discover that the prosperity of the Christian is God
ordained, God’s idea, and God’s greatest desire.

As a matter
of fact, if anyone must question, doubt or get sceptical about the message of
prosperity, it shouldn’t be the Christians. God’s idea is not even that the
Christian should try and become rich; for the Christian has already been made
rich. Moreover, the Christian should make the non-Christians rich by teaching
them how to prosper God’s way.

This is what
the Apostle Paul meant when he said, we make many rich (2 Corinthians 6:10). I
love the way Weymouth New Testament Translation puts it; it says “we bestow
wealth on many”. That’s our calling as Christians. There’s an anointing on us
to make people rich; to make their lives beautiful and prosperous. You’re
called to “bestow wealth on many!”

If you’re a
child of God, believe in prosperity and don’t be apologetic about it. Don’t
accept to be poor or average. You’ve been made rich (2 Corinthians 8:9);
therefore believe in prosperity and prove your faith by refusing to talk lack
and poverty. Instead, keep talking your way to financial abundance!

PRAYER

Thank You Heavenly Father for
ordaining me to be rich! I believe and acknowledge the grace of the Lord Jesus
Christ who though was rich, made Himself poor that I might be made rich. I
accept my prosperity as Your Will and idea for my life in Jesus Christ Name,
Amen!

God Rewards Humility.

Jesus is considered by scholars such as Weber ...
Image via Wikipedia

Although men
look at the outward appearance, God looks on the heart. A humble man has
integrity, he has the wisdom of God and this is why God exalts him. The Bible
says,  “…….the wisdom that is from above
is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be willing to yield, full of
mercy and good fruits without partiality and
without hypocrisy” (James 3:17). Humility, therefore, does not mean
timidity or foolishness as some have assumed. It is maturity, and applying the
wisdom of God with all honesty. It is responding to the Word of God with a pure
and teachable heart.

It is
imperative to learn how to deny your flesh of its desires, and let the nature
of God dominate you. Jesus said, “he that taketh not his cross and followeth
after me, is not worthy of me” (Matthew 10:38). When you humble yourself in the
sight of God, no matter how complicated your case may be, He will lift you up.
Job was described as a perfect and upright man, one who feared the Lord and
eschewed evil. He was famous for his wealth, but he lost everything; his
family, wealth and even health. Yet in spite of all these, the Bible noted
Job’s reaction as being without sin, neither did he charge God foolishly.

God has
given you every opportunity to express your love for Him. You might be looking
forward to experiencing a miracle, hoping that someday your heart’s desire
would be fulfilled. You might even be praying for a speedy one, not wanting to
wait as long as Joseph, Sarah, Elizabeth, Job or Jacob. When you look to God
for a miracle, trust His choice, and know that His timing is perfect. However,
there is a quality you must possess that will produce great results, a quality
that other will admire and be inspired by. That quality is humility.

PRAYER

Dear Heavenly Father, I
humble myself under your mighty hand. I receive your Word with meekness and
childlike faith, and I apply my heart to the wisdom that comes from above.
Thank You for the effect of Your Word in me as I exalt Your Word in my life, in
Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
